Diplomatic is never easily dismissed over this course and distance but Camachoice is weighted to reverse earlier running with the former. Wilfred Pickles returned to winning ways with a success at Lingfield in January with Bloodsweatandtears well beaten. He should go close again off only a 2lb higher mark while Flamborough Breeze also has decent claims if forgiven a below-par effort last time. Mr Red Clubs is another worthy of consideration but TRIPLE CHOCOLATE is preferred. His challenge fell away in the closing stages over 1m2f here a fortnight ago when he clearly didn't stay but Roger Ingram's 7f winner is worth another chance over today's distance.
